As with a sword in my bones, my | enemies re!

proach me; While they say daily unto me, Where is thy God! Why art thou cast down, | O my soul ! And why art thou dis quieted | in me? Hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise him Who is the health of my | countenance | and

my God.

Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an

un | godly | nation: Oh deliver me from the deceitful | and un I just


Oh send out thy light and thy truth ; | let them

lead me ;

Let them bring me out of thy holy hill, I and I to

thy | tabernacles.

, my God.

Then will I go unto the altar of God,
Unto God, my exceeding | joy.
Yea, upon the harp | will I praise thee,
O God : , my
Why art thou cast down, 1 O my soul !
And why art | thou dis quieted | in me?
Hope thou in God, for I shall | yet praise him
Who is the health of my countenance, and

my God.



HAVE mercy upon me, O God, according to thy I

loving I kindness: According unto the multitude of thy tender mercies

blot out my transgressions.

Wash me thoroughly from | mine in | iquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.

For I acknowledge my transgressions :
And my / sin is I ever before me.
Against thee, thee only have I | sinned,
And done this / evil | in thy | sight :

That thou mightest be justified | when thou | speakest,
And be clear when thou judgest.
Behold, I was shapen | in iniquity ;
And in / sin did my mother conceive me.

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward | parts: And in the hidden part thou shalt / make me to

know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: Wash me, and I shall be | whiter than | snow.

Make me to hear joy and gladness ;
That the bones which thou hast | broken | may

re I joice.
Hide thy face from my sins,
And | blot out' | all mine in | iquities.

Create in me a clean | heart, O God;
And renew a right | spirit with | in me.
Cast me not away | from my ! presence ;
And take not thy | 'holy spirit | from me.

Restore unto me the joy of thy sal | vation ;
And up hold me with thy free spirit.
Then will I teach trans gressors thy ways;
And sinners shall be con vert | ed un | to thee.

Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God

of my sal | vation : And my tongue shall sing a | loud of thy | righte:


O Lord, open | thou my lips ;
And my mouth shall show forth thy ) praise.

For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it.
Thou de lightest not in burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a | broken / spirit:
A broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt 1

not des / pise.

Psalm LI. 1–17."


TRULY my soul waiteth | upon | God:
From him cometh my salvation.
He only is my rock, and | my sal | vation :
He is my defence, I shall not be greatly moved.

In God is my salvation, and my glory :
The rock of my strength, and my , refuge | is in God.
Trust in him at all times, ye people; pour out your

heart be | fore him : God | is a refuge for us.

Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of

high degree are a lie: To be laid in the balance, they are alto | gether

lighter than | vanity. Trust not in oppression, and become not | vain in /

robbery : If riches increase, | set not your heart up on them.

God hath spoken once; twice have | I heard this,
That power be longeth unto God.
Also unto thee, O Lord, be | longeth | mercy :
For thou renderest to every man according to

his work.

Psalm LXII. 1,2,7-12.


O GOD, thou art my God;
Early | will I | seek i thee:
My soul | thirsteth for thee,
My flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land |

where no 1 water | is ;

To see thy power and thy glory,
So as I have seen thee | in the sanctuary.
Because thy loving kindness is better than | life,
My | lips shall | praise / thee.

Thus will I bless thee .while I live :
I will lift up my hands | in thy | name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with | marrow and I

fatness ; And my mouth shall / praise thee with | joyful | lips:

When I remember thee up | on my bed,
And meditate on thee | in the night | watches.
Because thou hast | been my | help,
Therefore in the shadow of thy | wings will | I re



PRAISE wai:eth for thee, O God, in | Sion;
And unto | thee shall the vow be per | formed.
O thou that I hearest | prayer,
Unto | thee shall | all flesh | come.
Iniquities prevail against me:
As for our transgressions, | thou shalt | purge them

a | way. Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest

to ap | proach un | to thee, That he may I dwell | in thy | courts : We shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy | house, Even of thy holy | temple. By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou

answer us, O God of our salvation ; Who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, And of them that are afar | off up I on the | sea : Which by his strength setteth | fast the mountains ; Being girded with power : Which stilleth the noise of the | seas, The noise of their waves, and the | tumult i of the

people. They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are al

fraid at thy | tokens : Thou makest the outgoings of the morning and

evening | to re 1 joice. Thou visitest the earth, and waterest | it: Thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, I

which is | full of water': Thou pre parest them corn, When thou hast | so provided for it.
